HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY FROM RED PEN, INC.


There are a million reasons why I love my mother, but one of the biggest reasons is because she passed her good grammar skills on to me. Thanks, MAMA GRAMMARPHILE, for teaching me good grammar, for submitting instances of screwy/funny grammar (see above) for this blog, for being my most faithful reader (even when Hump Day Grammar posts make her cringe, she still faithfully comes back and reads more of my posts), and for lots of other things, too--most notably for being the most awesome mom ever.

Happy Mother's Day to my own amazing mother...and to you (if you're a mom) and your amazing mothers, too! :)

Good post...it reminded me of the guy from IHOP who was complaining about the extra ice charge on his bill....maybe this is becoming more of a trend in restaurants...

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Haha! Yeah, perhaps it is. It'll be sad if restaurants start nickel-and-diming everyone so much...

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

I love you too, Mom. :)

She rocks, doesn't she? :)

Wait, what?? Is this saying that they charge extra because they pour more liquor in the glass if it contains ice? Huh? I'd think they would probably try to get away with pouring less in the glass, not more.

Yeah, I think that's a totally silly excuse they're trying to use...
